Mountain Lady's Slipper
Cypripedium montanum

Only found is southwestern Alberta and southern British Columbia at high elevations in moist evergreen forests. There are only five colonies in the foothills of Alberta.

Flowering occurs in June to July.

Height is up to 60cm.

I was happy to find this species, since it's only found in a few areas in Alberta.

Hi,Janice. Nice capture of this Mountain Ladies slipper which I must admit has some resemblance to a slipper. Nice depth of field to isolate one of them. Thanks for sharing.
